1

Typically presents as chest pain; fever,
leukocytosis, malaise, and tachycardia; friction rub

pericarditis

2

Most cases are idiopathic and presumed viral.

pericarditis

3

Systolic bp drops more than 10mmhg on inspiration_____. This happens in _____

pluses paradoxus; cardiac tamponade

4

when there’s a building of fluid around a structure.

pericardial effusion

5

Typically, sequelae of other disorders such as syste
matic infection, trauma, open heart surgery,
metabolic derangement or cancer.

pericardial diseases

6

rarest form of cardiomyopathy.

restrictive cardiomyopathy

7

can’t relax the V
enough to fill properly and so they have diastolic heart failure as it impairs diastolic function. Non
compliant rigid ventricles that impairs diastolic filling. Decreased CO and left sided HF can result

restrictive cardiomyopathy

8

Thickened hyperkinetic ventricular muscle mass. The septum often effected and being so thickened will disrupt blood flow.

hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

9

You see the dilation of one or both V’s, may be related to alcohol toxicity, pregnancy,
postviral myocarditis, or genetic abnormality. Can slowly progress from one ventricular failing to biventricular
failure with low EF (<40%

dilated cardiomyopathy

10

external compression of heart due to excess volume-a liter or more around the heart

cardiac tamponade
